User Opaque?
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 24, '01 09:23:49PM
But still we run into a LOT of "user opaque" operations - such as this back-arrow on help (I never noticed it!). Which interestingly enough gives me the ability to run help in Japanese! A bit on the useless side for me and most people in North America!

That Japanese link in the Help Center is not the equivelant of the Japanese Mac Help. It's a different help. To view your help (and indeed the entire system) in Japanese you would change your setting in International settings in the System Preferences. Try it, it's fun. ;)

On the other hand things like the desktop, which many people apparently do not use, has icons on it that I can read from 20 feet away (on a 21" monitor at 1280 x 1024!). Nothing I have found seems to alter their size except booting into OS 9.1 (not really an option!).

To change the size of the icons, you go to the Finder prefrences. (Which is the same location as the preferences for any app... in the Application menu for that app. In this case, under the Finder menu.) It's self-explanitory from there.
